Insti­tute for Solid State Physics, Karlsruhe Insti­tute of Technology

Hilbert von Löhney­sen is Emeri­tus Profes­sor at the Physikalis­ches Insti­tut of the Karlsruhe Insti­tute of Technol­ogy (KIT). Until April 2016 he was also Direc­tor of the Insti­tute for Solid State Physics at KIT.

His research focuses on exper­i­men­tal solid state physics, on the one hand in the field of strongly corre­lated electron systems, in partic­u­lar the explo­ration of magnetic quantum phase transi­tions, and on the other hand on the explo­ration of metal­lic nanos­truc­tures, for example, of nanocon­tacts between super­con­duc­tors and ferromagnets.

Hilbert von Löhney­sen is a member of the Heidel­berg Academy of Sciences and Human­i­ties and the German National Academy of Science and Engineer­ing (acatech). Until 2001 he was member of the senate and the Joint Commit­tee of the German Research Founda­tion (DFG). Until 2012 he was a member of the German Council of Science and Human­i­ties, addition­ally he was also Chair­man of the Scien­tific Commis­sion until 2012.
